The Dutch are slowly recognizing that their blackface tradition of Zwarte Piet is racist and weird


Over multiple years now, WorldViews has run stories about the problematic Dutch tradition of Zwarte Piet. Around Christmastime, myriad Dutch adults and children have customarily donned frilly wigs, patted themselves in blackface, painted their lips red and japed around in costumes as "Black Pete," the dark-skinned helpers of Sinterklaas, or Saint Nicholas ...

The Dutch have got to be within the top three global practicing racist to date.

1. Castilian Spanish
2. Italians
3. Dutch Boers

The actual list is quite long & distinguished but these are the top three. Number's 1 & 2 hate everything Black but the Dutch Boers have a particular hate for the indigenous African natives who they call Kaffirs.






Right, Right ... and don't leave out the Portuguese, Williams laid full blame for our demise on them as well:

I had both Castilian Spanish & Portuguese interns on my team & the Castilian's seemed somewhat aloof but amicable since they were vying for employment, the Ports as we called them seemed to be like in their own world, not mean or nasty, just didn't talk unless they had to.
